Working the Canvas
If you read the last post, you know my Book of Faces for this invitational exhibition at the La Quinta Museum, Women In Art: Tell Me A Story, was completed and the work on the canvas which would support the book began.
The 18 x 24" gallery wrap canvas was painted with hues used in the faces and a composition similar to other paintings in this series, Native American Basket Weavers. Shapes inspired by actual designs used on baskets created by these women were added.
Cutting out stylized butterflies to paint and adhere to the canvas.
Because this has become a mixed media piece, snake skin was added as a representation of basket design work. The creation of the canvas design is still on going. Come back to watch it all come together.
